Do you not have a problem with 'some people' profiting from the work
of a whole community?
As a matter of princple, I do not. I think that, to varying degrees,
it happens with any collaboratively or community produced work. That
doesn't mean I always enjoy it.
Are there any examples of free software communities perhaps forming
cooperatives of producers so that more can benefit?
Can you explain what you mean by this? Geert suggested that the Debian
project is one example although I think I may disagree if you mean
"benefit" financially. A little clarification would be good.
